Flood waters fill downtown Mulvane during a recent storm earlier this month.

The U.S. Small Business Administration is offering disaster loans to several Kansas counties affected by severe storms and flooding earlier this month.

The low-interest federal loans will be available in Sedgwick, Butler, Cowley, Harper, Kingman, and Sumner counties. The SBA declared a disaster in those areas after heavy rains caused flooding in cities throughout southern Kansas.

Businesses and most nonprofits can borrow up to $2 million to repair or replace damaged property. Homeowners and renters can also apply for assistance with damaged real estate or personal property.

A walk-in disaster loan outreach center opens Tuesday at Cowley County College in Mulvane and will remain open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., until further notice. SBA representatives will be on hand to answer questions and assist people with their loan applications.

The deadline to submit applications for property damage is Nov. 15; the deadline to return economic injury applications is June 16, 2017.
